Tooth decay is caused when the erosion of your tooth enamel leads to holes forming in your teeth, otherwise known as cavities. If this goes untreated, the cavities can worsen and infection may begin to spread to your gums and jawbone. So, what steps can you take to prevent oral disease from occurring?

Brush your tongue
Use a fluoride toothpaste and remember to rinse with mouthwash
Visit your dentist for regular dental check-ups
It’s important that you regularly attend dental check-ups every 3-4 months . Don’t assume that you can skip an appointment just because your teeth look healthy to you and haven’t experienced any discomfort. A dentist has the expertise to see symptoms or signs of potential issues that you won’t be able to notice. Regular dental cleaning can help remove tartar build-up that cannot be removed with regular cleaning at home.
